Historic New York programs highlight the history and architecture of selected neighborhoods or parks. Native American culture is celebrated in special programs throughout the five boroughs. 

The Lenape Indians lived in the Bronx for thousands of years before European settlement pushed them out. Come learn how native tribes used the local waterways and native plants and wildlife to survive.

The Urban Park Rangers will point out many of those vital plants and animals still found in parks today on this moderate hike. Learn how the Lenape legacy lives on today through their words and artifacts still being discovered.
